Default Losi Speed 8 vs Traxxas Rustler VXL vs HPI E-Firestorm

I'm looking into of getting a 1/10 truck with brushless RTR, and I noticed there are 3 out there: Losi Speed 8 vs Traxxas Rustler VXL vs HPI E-Firestorm. Which one is the best one for the money?

Best gearbox goes to the HPI. The brushless system in the Losi is an unknown, but the other two seem to be descent. I can't stand the plastic motor plate on Traxxas products nor the combination gearbox/hinge pin mounts. Losi probably has the best radio.
